Insiders Guide - Our Founder Michelle Hope clues us in where to go and what to see just in time for London Fashion Week
Posted: Feb 18 2014
Michelle's February packing essentials for London…Bath oil or essence — constant warm soaks are needed to throw of the damp London chill. Michelle must see and do places. Michelle's, Not-to-be missed cultural stops… The National Gallery , Tate Modern Camden Market and Portobello Road. Secret only a local would know… VICKISARGE on Elizabeth Street in Belgravia for the ultimate in fashion jewelry. The Buckingham Palace flag only flies at full staff when the Queen is in residence. And the most famous pub in Wilton Row, The Grenadier , is charming and uniquely London. A must for visiting this area. Got to Spot for Lunch, I’m usually on the run and opt for a quick bite at itsu on the Strand near Somerset House — love their Go Go Pots. Another favorite is Rose Bakery, on Dover Street Market’s top floor. Great food, great fashion. Claridge’s Bar. Always the bustling cocktail scene of Frieze , London design fairs and Fashion Week. I don’t really drink, but if I’m going to sip on something, it’s usually a strawberry martini. If you’re in the mood for dancing…Head to Loulou’s — a chic nightclub lounge downstairs at 5 Hertford Street. My British style icons… Kate Winsle Naomi Campbell Kate Moss Best place for a traditional English meal… Scott’s on Mount Street for smoked salmon, shepherd’s pie and Dover sole.
